Life of the Demoiselles  (1981)

Also known as: Pragivandnymfernes liv
Carl Henrik Jensen at Wildscreen, 1982

Throughout Europe live species of dragonfly known as the Beautiful demoiselle and Banded demoiselle.  This film shows the life cycles of these insects starting with the larvae which, after two years living beneath water emerge, and in a couple of hours become brightly coloured flying insects.  The film goes on to look at the short but fascinating life of these insects.  Highly Commended at the Wildscreen Film Festival "Panda Awards" Ceremony, 1982.
